Diana, Princess of Wales- Day 15-31daysofWomen

“Only do what your heart tells you.”~ Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales. (July 1, 1960-August 31, 1997).

I still remember the first time I heard of Princess Diana, it was July 29, 1981 when she married Prince Charles. I woke up that morning and with my mother, sister and Abuelita watched the whole wedding. It was like experiencing a live fairytale before my eyes. The whole ceremony was just beautiful and the dress, she definitely looked like a true Princess.

After that day, Princess Diana was a regular reading from magazines while waiting for my mom at the hair salon or at the tailors. I read every “HOLA” magazine about her: how she lived, what she did, where she went, her outfits, everything about Lady Di I knew.

The one thing I admired of Princess Diana was how humble she was, she was for the people, always in photographs with children, the day to day people and the ill. Her charity work was extensive, she made numerous public appearances and developed an intense interest in serious illnesses and health-related matters. She led numerous campaigns to raise AIDS awareness, to protect animals and against the use of inhumane weapons. All of these actions gained her popularity and a major presence on the world stage.

On August 31, 1997 she was fatally injured in a car accident in Paris, France. Her unexpected death was felt worldwide.

Princess Diana is remembered for her compassion, high profile charity work and charisma . In the words of her brother Charles Spencer: “She proved in the last year that she needed no royal title to continue to generate her particular brand of magic.”
